Obituary for Verona Mae Petersen

Verona Mae Petersen was born May 15, 1927 in Tracy, Minnesota to Sanford and Veronica (Hook) Moon. She grew up in Tyler and graduated from Tyler High School. She worked as a waitress for a couple years at the Chat ‘N Chew Cafe in Tyler. On June 8, 1946 Verona married Earl Petersen in Tracy, Minnesota. Their union was blessed with three children and 71 years of life together. She raised their family and worked for a while in the State Farm Insurance office. In 1963 she became bookkeeper at Tyler Implement Company, of which she and Earl became the sole owners in 1977. She retired in 1994 when the business was sold. In recent years, Verona has resided at Avera Sunrise Manor Nursing Home in Tyler. There, on Sunday, May 13, 2018 Verona died two days shy of her 91st birthday.

Verona was a member of Danebod Lutheran Church in Tyler, Minnesota and of the Danebod Ladies Aid. She was also a member of the American Legion Auxiliary in Tyler. She enjoyed gardening and baking, and spending time at the lake. She was a lover of animals and a pet owner, but her special interest was her grandchildren.

Verona is lovingly remembered by her husband, Earl; her children, Diane (and Alan) Gordon of Tyler, David (and JoAnne) Petersen of Alexandria, Minnesota, and Daryle (and Laura) Petersen of Eagan, Minnesota; six grandchildren, Jeri (Paul) Rogers, Mindi Gordon (Joe Stiner), Britta (Lynden) Reder, Kristian (Hannah) Petersen, Andrea (Mathias) Peterson, and Lucas Petersen; eight great-grandchildren, Josh, Jonah, Maris (Mike), Taryn (fianc Chris), Braxton, Kilen, Elsie, and Owen; one great-great-grandchild, Natalie; a brother, Keith Moon of Minneapolis, Minnesota; and many other relatives and friends. She was preceded in death by her parents; a grandchild; and two brothers, Sanford and Milton Moon.

Blessed and eternal be her memory.
